The number of indications of the allografts is increasing in bone and joint pathology treatment.

With this good alternative, it is possible to avoid the morbidity sometimes observed in patients in which autograft is used.

We present 6 cases of fractures of the external tibial plateau type B3 (AO classification) treated using bone allograft (a piece of femoral head) as a support of the tibial plateau after to get a proper reduction of the fractures.

In all the cases we got good results in the support function of the allograft as in consolidation, with no complication.
